Jane Doe – Cameron Parish Louisiana
UPDATE May 29, 2021 – Authorities have identified the head as belonging to a San Antonio woman who was reported missing in 2017, Sally Ann Hines. Sheriff Johnson said the break in the case also came from the help of the LSU FACES Lab. He said they created this digital reconstruction of what the unidentified person might look like. Last week, a citizen called investigators saying that image looked like Sally Hines. Now begins another part of the investigation. The authorities have determined she was murdered.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Cameron Parish authorities have released a forensic facial imaging that are hoping the public can identify. On March 1, 2018, a severed head was found on La 27 south of Hackberry. She was not identified and the police released the image reconstruction in hopes that someone would know who she is.
The head was found in a plastic bag on the side of a road at a Louisiana wildlife refuge by cleanup crews. No other body parts have been recovered at this time. The woman is believed to be white or Hispanic and between the ages of 30 to 50 with medium length brown hair. It is also believed she had been dead around 1 to 6 weeks before she was found.
On March 24, 2018, a woman and her daughter found a head while helping to clean up an area at Lake Houston near the 10600 block of FM 1960. Just two weeks prior a man was seen on the bridge throwing a black bag off the bridge. It is now believed he was aiming for the water, but missed and it landed on the banks below. Is it possible this person was responsible for both crimes? Is there a serial killer out there? Click here to read more: “Did witnesses catch a serial killer throwing a woman’s head off a bridge?”
